I wont lie. I was completely broke. Like, nothing but lint in my pockets, spiderwebs in the wallet, broke.
I’ve dedicated a good portion of my life to telling love stories. Couples come to me, I get to know them, and I document their engagement and/or wedding day through photos and words on this here blog. But I’ve never taken the time to share my own love story. The reason I do what I do, why love is so important to me and the impact it’s had on my life… My actual heart and soul.
It’s been a heck of a long time since I shared anything personal here. Maybe I’ve been too busy to take the time to share anything about me… but truthfully I’ve known what I
want need to say and I’ve been to afraid to say it. I wrote the words below to give as a talk at a women’s event this spring… but, I wasn’t able to deliver then, so i’m sharing now!
You know, social media can really make being an entrepreneur look like unicorns and rainbows when most of the time it’s actually ramen noodles, day old yoga pants, credit card debt, and a messy house while you sit in front of a computer screen for hours.
Today I’m sharing some notes about life along with images of three of my FAVES! Spencer, Belen & Hendrix are wild and fun, we had such a blast at the Little Sahara Sand Dunes last month. This is the perfect time to post this because the amazing Belen just graduated with her degree in nursing! As someone who totally struggled in school (and never finished), I completely admire Belen doing the work to graduate! I know it took many sleepless nights and lots of hard work Belen, Great work! Congratulations… You da BOMB!
We are two full months in to 2017 (how the heck is it march already?!) and I just want to take a second to fully appreciate how amazing 2016 was.
In this post I’m going to share MY favorite wedding images from 2016. These aren’t the images that will grace the pages of wedding blogs and you’ll never find them published in magazines. They are seldom glamorous but they are funny, lovely, and SO right in so many ways.
“The Moment that you feel that
you’re walking down the street naked
exposing too much of your heart
and your mind
and what exists on the inside
showing too much of yourself
that’s the moment
you may be starting to get it right”
I hope I’m getting this right.
